|Professional audio production, editing, and mixing techniques - Dowse, Justin Michael|
The purpose of this thesis is to demonstrate professional and efficient music production and music mixing techniques. This is not meant to be a definitive answer to the endless approaches that can be used in music production and mixing. Instead, it is intended to aid learning in a profession where there are no black and white answers since choices in music production and mixing are highly dependent upon the engineer's preferences...

|Lost in translation: the queens of Beowulf - Horton-Depass, Laura Ann|
The poem Beowulf has been translated hundreds of times, in part or in whole. In past decades translators such as Howell Chickering and E. Talbot Donaldson firmly adhered to formal equivalency, following the original text line-by-line if not word-by-word. Such translations are useful for Anglo-Saxon students but cannot reach a larger audience because they are unwieldy and often incomprehensible. In the past fifty years, though, a group of translators with different philosophies has taken up the t...

|Variaciones de motivos en los cuentos de Josefina Pla : personajes femeninos, objetos de deuncia e historia Paraguaya - Weiss, Andrew|
This research project studies a selection of Paraguayan short stories by Josefina Pla (Fuerteventura 1903 -Asuncion 1999). Through the exploration of certain motifs she associated to Paraguayan history; her characterization of female protagonists; and the insertion of animate and inanimate objects she uses to mask a denunciation of social, cultural, ethical, and gender issues of the Paraguayan microcosm, this thesis seeks to contribute a fresh critical perspective to the limited body of academic...

|The spatial pattern of economic rents and urban land value model around an airport area: the case study of suvarnabhumi international airport, thailand - Bejrananda, Chakarin|
With the rise of the importance of air transportation in the 21st centuries, the role of economics in airport planning and decision-making has become more important to the urban structure and land value around it. The relationship between the airport and land value in urban areas has attracted more attention from academic researchers. However, there has been little research on the factors that affect the prices of land relatively to the airport location.Using New Bangkok International Airport (S...

|ENERGY HARVESTING FROM MICROBIAL FUEL CELL USING SELF-SYNCHRONOUS FLYBACK CONVERTER - Alaraj, Muhannad|
Microbial Fuel Cells (MFCs) use biodegradable matter, such as wastewater and animal droppings to generate electrical energy. To harvest the energy from MFC, power electronic converters have recently been used because of their advantages, such as the ability to store the harvested energy and the ability to control MFC voltage. Although power electronic converters have advantages to be used to harvest the energy, the diode based energy harvesters suffer from the low efficiency because of the diode...

|Heidegger's discourse on Heraclitus's Concepts of Logos and Aletheia - Rainer, Kristopher Stephen|
his paper maintains that the work of Heidegger on Heraclitus' fragments 50 on logos and 16 on aletheia, represent a viable alternative to the "Metaphysics" of Occident Thinking in the early 20th century, which has culminated in the mindset of the our technological age. It further explores an alternative aspiration for language and methodology that is able to serve as a viable alternative for the exploration of Heraclitus' texts, given their fragmentary format and obscure nature...

|PRACTICAL METHODS FOR CRITICAL LOAD DETERMINATION AND STABILITY EVALUATION OF STEEL STRUCTURES - Fernandez-Mora, Pedro|
The critical load of a column, compression member or structure, calculated from a linear elastic analysis of an idealized perfect structure, does not necessary correspond with the load at which instability of a real structure occurs. This calculated critical load does not provide sufficient information to determine when failure, due to instability of the structure as a whole, will occur. To obtain this information it is necessary to consider the initial geometrical imperfections, eccentricities ...

|A METHOD FOR PERFORMANCE VERIFICATION OF FREEWARE HASH UTITLIES USING MATLAB - Jacobson, Sean R.|
HASH values are the result of a cryptographic HASH function that can be used for security or file authentication. Due to the rise of file exchange on the internet this value has become even more important when working with digital evidence. In recent years freeware programs have become available online for both commercial and personal use to check for this value. However, there has not yet been a set way to verify these programs and to check that the results they are giving is in fact accurate...

|Fun House : Ludus Loci and the American Home as Folly - Thomas, Lyle David|
While play marks both the cultural and pre-cultural spheres of human existence, the environmental design disciplines have almost exclusively compartmentalized the notions of play and fun into categories of leisure and children's playgrounds. The rhetorics of environmental design, to date, have ignored, or at best marginalized, the possibility of play outside of recreational and commercial contexts...

|A weighty matter: effects of adiposity on adult neurocognitive health - Brannon, Sarah|
There is a growing body of evidence suggesting there are modifiable vascular and metabolic risk factors for Alzheimer's disease (AD). Despite many plausible mechanisms by which obesity could contribute, its etiological contributions remains unclear. We therefore investigated 1) the evidence linking obesity to cognitive health, 2) whether obesity in early or mid-life is associated with cognitive change and the possible factors involved, and 3) whether dietary interventions that reduce weight impr...

|Will My Insurance Cover It? - Ethnography of Inclusion: Initiatives to Increase Access to BRCA 1/2 Genetic Testing - Hammad, Emily Allia|
Women diagnosed with breast cancer may find BRCA 1/ 2 genetic testing useful in order to make decisions about breast cancer treatment options or in determining risk of future cancers. Through an ethnography of eight breast cancer survivors in the Denver Metro-Area this study reveals how access to BRCA 1/ 2 genetic testing differs depending on the type of private insurance coverage patients have. The political ecology of health (PEH) theoretical framework is used to analyze how the private insura...

|Assessment of concrete masonry units containing aggregate replacements of waste glass and rubber tire particles - Isler, Jerry W.|
Sustainable construction has become an interest in the engineering community and several standards have been developed to assess the environmental impact of new construction projects. Research has shown that it is possible to use recycled materials to replace some of the traditional mixture components in concrete products and produce a more sustainable building material. Two materials that are currently recycled and have the possibility of use in concrete applications are waste glass and rubber ...

|Heat and moisture transport in unsaturated porous media: a model in terms of chemical potential - Sullivan, Eric|
Transport phenomena in porous media are commonplace in our daily lives. Examples and applications include heat and moisture transport in soils, baking and drying of food stuffs, curing of cement, and evaporation of fuels in wild fires. Of particular interest to this study are heat and moisture transport in unsaturated soils. Historically, mathematical models for these processes are derived by coupling classical Darcy's, Fourier's, and Fick's laws with volume averaged conservation of mass and ene...

|Examining the differential effects of natural and synthetic aromas of lavender and peppermint on cognition, mood, and subjective workload - Cavanaugh, Jamie Lynn|
There is reliable, empirical evidence that various inhaled aromas can significantly affect mood, cognition, physiology and behavior (Herz, 2009).

|Switching strategies for ac/ac vector switching matrix converters - Bakir, Ahmed Mohamed|
This thesis proposes switching strategies for AC chopper converters which can implement the multiple steps switching technique and convert the AC energy to AC, directly. The switching process in this technique depends on the current direction in the load. The main advantage of the technique is that the load will not be disconnected during switching events. Also, the semi-soft switching topology overcomes the switching problems in the AC chopper converters, without increasing the conduction losse...

The safety of merging and diverging influence areas, intersections, interchanges, and other traffic facilities is assessed by tracking and analyzing police-reported motor vehicle crash records.
